New Avast doesn't show filenames while scanning
« on: December 06, 2018, 06:56:30 AM »
Sir,
I am Using Avast Free since 2011. Its a great experience.

For last 2 years after program update, the new Avast doesn't show any filenames while scanning. Previously filenames were shown in a ribbon and they will quickly change, making me feel good and also allowing me to see which files are scanned.

Is it possible to get this feature back in Avast?

Or, is it that this feature is hidden and I can turn it on somewhere?

Thankyou,
Damodara das

It was dropped, if my memory serves me well. Probably at the same time as the Stats section of the Avast UI was removed.  This Avast said was for a revision/rework, but that has never reappeared.
